Trio 3 BE BOP [Venus Records/Single layered Stereo SACD] LOVE Deep Discount's 'Blowout Bin...' Was able to get this fantastic all female Trio jammin' on compositions by Thelonious Monk, Miles and Dizzy, et alia for under $15 [$40 list at Acoustic Sounds] As expected, the sonics are extraordinary!

Kenny Dorham - Matador

I really like the music on this Impex SACD.
Nice performance by Kenny and Jackie McLean too.
Sound is OK but very slightly fatiguing, wish they’d smoothed it out a bit. Cymbals are coarse.
Maybe it’s the original recording.
Very cool album cover.

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong -
Ella and Louis Again


Great album with clean, clear and warm sound. Think I like this one better than Ella and Louis.
But after reading up on this release, it appears to be only the first record of what was originally a 2 album set.

Diana Krall - Turn Up the Quiet

Great album title (and cover).
Laid back as one would expect from the title.
Her voice is mic’d really closely which makes it nicely intimate but also a bit too revealing at times, exposing some rough edges.
But a nice album overall, miles better than the previous record, Wildflower.
Hopefully Universal HK releases This Dream of You on SACD too.

So Deep Discount was running one of their 15% off sales and I was able to purchase this single layered Stereo SACD for UNDER $7 [e~bay has a current listing for over $30 + s/h]. The original UMG/Verve SACD was pressed in the USA...this one was pressed in the EU and frankly, sounds spectacular. UMG Japan has just reissued it as a Stereo SHM~SACD and does have the corrected 'reversed' L/R channels [as does the Analogue Production's Stereo SACD] but both remasters omit the two wonderful bonus tracks on the original UMG pressing.

Ella Fitzgerald -
Clap Hands, Here Comes Charlie!


Another really really nice Analogue Productions SACD.
Smooth sound and music.
One of these days I need to compare with the Classic Gold CD.
It’s been a while since I played the latter but if memory serves it’s more on the detail and presence side, while this SACD is warm.

Matthew Sweet - Son of Altered Beast

I like this EP as much, maybe more, than some of his full length albums.
A mixture of of Live and studio it’s brevity helps because I sometimes find it hard to get through a whole MS album in one sitting.
This one is short and sweet.

The O’Jays - Survival & Family Reunion

Another silky smooth Vocalion SACD from the PIR vaults.
These albums were huge hits back then, I can hear why.

John Coltrane - Blue Train

Stone cold classic. Awesome album.
The 50th and final addition to my AP Blue Note collection.
Too bad they got the cover wrong (lacking in detail and grey instead of blue, much worse that what I pasted here) but after 4 years waiting for the back order to ship, I ain’t really complaining lol
